Spacetime's Finest #1 Spacetime's Finest #3

Dean Trippe imagines a pair of crossovers between the Doctor and the World’s Finest Heroes! I’ve seen three episodes of “Doctor Who” in my life. While I might lose Geek Cred points for this, it is fair to say I am not a Whovian. Still, I’d read these. Then I’d read ’em again!

Check out Trippe’s Tumblr for more great art and other finds!

Brave and the Bold presents ... Batman and Jay-Z

Admit it. You’d read the heck out of this comics (if only it actually existed!). This gem by Chris Sims and Kerry Callen is from the Great Comics That Never Happened series at Comics Alliance. Go check ’em all out. And visit Kallen’s blog for more of his (brilliant) comics artwork.

Bizarre O's

Sugar Justice Kryptonite Krunch Brain Bran Mxyzptlk Alpha-Bites

Designer Phil Postma has created a series of (faux) Superman-themed cereal boxes. A fantastic set of designs, with great attention to detail, that harken back to a glut of themed cereals of days gone by. Who wouldn’t want a nice bowl of Bizarre O’s in the morning? Or sugar-coated Justice to start their day? I know I would. Postma gets extra points for using Kellogg’s as maker for two of the cereals. Longtime Superman fans know why.

Head on over to Postma’s blog, Minion Factory, for more of his work. Be sure to dig in the archives for a look at his fun and stylized, yet still classic, designs for a potential Superman animated series!

heroicwords

Graphic designer Adam Thompson put this piece together as part of his “Heroic Words of Wisdom” series, which also features posters containing quotes of heroes such as Batman, the Flash and Green Lantern.

While I’m not sure of the source of the art, it is ostensibly at least modeled after the style of Jim Lee. The quote, however, comes from ACTION COMICS #775, written by Joe Kelly.

ACTION COMICS #775 interior

Despite all the changes the character has gone through in his more than 75 years of existence … to me, the quote is a firm baseline of Superman’s core. Whether he be the champion of the oppressed from the ’30s and ’40s, maintainer of the status quo from the ’50s and ’60s, the universally revered legend of the ’70s and ’80s or the lonesome, introspective hero of the modern day … Superman, with every fiber of his being stands for dignity, honor and justice — or in the vernacular: Truth, Justice and the American Way.

Thompson has never done any comic book work (at least according to the Grand Comics Database), but you can check out more of his work at his Behance portfolio site.

I don’t often post this type of thing here. It is so rare, I didn’t even have a proper category for such posts. In fact, this might actually be the first one.

Clash of the Titans

Superman. Incredible Hulk. Ridiculously adorable.

All by artist Adam Archer, who is not someone I am familiar with, but has a handful of credits with DC Comics and other publishers according to Grand Comics Database

According to Archer’s Deviant Art page, the piece was sold as a print at ComicCon a few years back.

I would love to have one. Or, better yet, an entire story — Superman vs. Hulk — done in this style.

C’mon, DC. C’mon, Marvel. Make it happen.
